Welcome to Fruit Salad week at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog. This week we were to use any fruit in our project. I used the fruit cut from the Nate's ABCs cartridge. It is cut at 3 3/4" from an assortment of stash papers.

It has a large base so I decided there was perfect for an Action Wobble (couldn't get a good picture of the wobble, sorry). I used my Gelatos for the first time for the white highlights on the fruit.

The background is a plain piece of white card stock that I sprayed with my homemade glimmer spray. I sprayed through some punchinello for a nice polka dot look. It's kind of a subtle look but I like how it turned out. It may have looked a little better with a solid piece between the two layer but I had it all together before I thought about that and didn't want to tear it all up. 

Make sure to visit all the design team members to get some inspiration and then link your project. Have a great week!
